The recipient of this year's Sequoia Award for Best Volunteer Program, Redwood City-based digital marketing firm Rocket Fuel, shared some photos with Patch this week of a few of its charitably giving projects they conduct throughout the area.
To name just a few of its employee volunteer projects, coordinator Kiwoba Omaya-Allaire said participants regularly get together to feed and visit with the residents of Redwood City's Maple Street Shelter; organize a toy drive for local underprivileged children during the holidays; and collecting clothes for the InnVision Shelter Network.
Also included in the slideshow are photos from Omaya-Allaire accepting the Sequoia Award on behalf of the company on March 7, and serving as the honored guest speaker at the Redwood City-San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce's "Good Morning, Redwood City!" breakfast the following week.
"Rocket Fuel is proud to be the Outstanding Business recipient of Redwood City's Sequoia Award. We were recognized for our contribution to the community, and along with the award itself, were awarded with a variety of proclamations and recognition from California State Senator Jerry Hill and U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein," Omaya-Allaire said.
